Startling a dog a couple times will not create a fearful dog. Not teaching your dog how to handle scares will create the problem.
yes Agreed. I was one of the "attackers" if you will..l until it was clarified. I too have been guilty of startling Titan... like when he's not paying attention, sometimes I'll grab his sides and make some weird noise.. he end up jumping in the air and then chasing me around excitedly.. became kinda like a game.. So I know the fun part of the startle game too

Not to mention children have a little more understanding, and the capability to understand what is going on.

I think in the OP... a picture was painted that they purposely chase their dog around with this thing while it flees for it's life and is utterly terrified.. later the OP clarified that it was curious of the toy and when moved jumped, and it was funny. VERY different picture, VERY different reaction.

TheDakotaShow Haha seems interesting. Maybe you should let ur pup chase it so it thinks its a game.

ApselBear I guess we shouldn't play peek-a-boo with our kids either.

Silliness people. Have a wonderful day

I don't find this amusing at all.

I don't want my puppy to be afraid or startled by anything, I want him to be confident and curious.

You are setting your puppy up to be more fearful in the future.

nktigger99 No...because my kids regular drive remote control cars and Thomas train.....so I don't want her reacting to them at all.

That paints quite the different picture than chasing him around with it and in that instance it would probably be funny.. I think people ahve the idea you are honestly taking out your car and chasing him with it while he runs scared for his life..
